The Audi A6 sedan has been redesigned for 2012. The revised car is slightly wider and rides on a wheelbase three inches longer than its predecessor. The result is increased interior space. The model also makes more use of aluminum in the unibody. A 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder replaces the previous 3.2L V6 in entry-level cars, where it delivers 210 hp. The supercharged 3.0L V6 returns and now produces 310 hp and 325 ft-lb of torque. The 4.2L V8 has been dropped from the lineup, as has the A6 Avant wagon. The 2.0L engine is rated at 25 mpg city and 33 mpg highway, while the 3.0L returns 19 mpg and 28 mpg, respectively.

Audi has upped its game in recent years to match forces with BMW and Mercedes-Benz, and the 2012 A6 puts the carmaker one step closer. The 2.0L turbocharged models are competitively priced, while the 3.0 supercharged cars give buyers a hefty dose of performance. Add in technology goodies like Google Earth navigation and wireless hotspot, and the A6 proves to be a formidable entry in the luxury sport sedan segment.
